The fields of critical global studies and globalization studies face serious challenges as the result of deepening and interrelated global crises and the emergence of multiple and innovative forms of global uprisings, popular politics, and (new) forms of resistance and emancipatory struggle. These crises are driven by remarkably complex structural and systemic processes, changes, and challenges, with highly diversifying impacts on and responses from different social forces and localities. The chaotic nature of global transitions has now translated into our intellectual realms in the form of widening loopholes, diverging discourses, and increasingly controversial normative debates. Critical scholarship now itself needs to be radically transformed in order to become radically transformative. This chapter particularly aims to promote deliberation between diverse, fresh efforts at comprehending the shifting terrain of global studies, engaging emerging and established scholars from both Southern and Northern contexts.
